Tender feelings develop between Tonya and Seth and Seth wants to protect her. When the danger escalates, Seth takes Tonya home to Wrangler’s Corner and enlists the help of his brother, Sheriff Clay Starke. She knows he'll find her, he always does, but she doesn't want Seth's family harmed. Can they find him before he's able to follow through with his threat?
From start to finish this was a definite page turner. The reader is kept totally engaged and on the edge of their seat. There was an unexpected twist I didn't see coming which is always something I appreciate. It was interesting learning something about a rodeo and especially the rodeo clowns who take on those massive bulls when a rider falls off. Tonya was someone I liked. She was a strong person. She grew up with brothers so she had to be tough! Yet she had a very sweet spirit. Seth was a great hero, tough yet gentle and understanding. He seems to really get who Tonya is. Both have been hurt but for different reasons yet they also are very attracted to each other. The struggles they have with their faith seemed very natural to me. This is book 2 in the Wrangler Corners series but you could read it as a stand-alone. The Lawman Returns (book 1) is Clay's story and he plays a big part here as well. If you like action, suspense, and romance then Rodeo Rescuer is the book for you. Here’s the opening sentence: “If he caught her, he’d kill her. Tonya Waters hunched lower in the bullfighter barrel and held her breath.” It’s hard to put down so allot yourself some time.
